It's FINALLY here!!!We are pleased to announce a new tool to help you find the right surgeon for your needs. Our new Joint Surgeon Locator is unlike any other locator out there because it can identify specific things you've told us you want to know about orthopedic surgeons - their specialties, whether they perform bi-lateral surgery, do they work with younger patients, and much more. We are just beginning to sign up surgeons for a paid subscription where these items will be provided in their profile, so it will take some time to get this in place. But we believe in the next year as our tool matures to where we want it to be, you'll agree that it is very helpful for BoneSmarties who need to locate a trusted surgeon with specific skills.
Our launch is just in its infancy, so we still have a lot of work to do to make it fully functional. But it is ready now for you to review and use.
To access the Joint Surgeon Locator, just click on this link (it may take a little time to load, so be patient), type in your zip code and search.
We have pre-loaded the database with more than 7,000 orthopedic surgeons and are continuing to add more each week. If you don't see your surgeon's name listed, you can submit his or her name so we can get them added. Just send an email to [email protected] with the following information:
* Surgeon's full name
* Clinic address and telephone number
* Surgeon's email address (if known)
WE NEED YOUR HELP! Please take some time to find any surgeons you have seen in our new locator and give them a rating. This will help us and those BoneSmarties who follow you in surgery to know your experience with the doctor.
